Tight Braid Group is a performance collective founded by Francis Weiss Rabkin and Leslie Allison. Our research and rehearsal practice prioritizes emotional and political engagement. We collaborate with poets, choreographers, musicians, activists, and visual artists to build powerful new works rooted in strong community bonds. Tight Braid Group has presented work in New York City at the Prelude Festival, HERE Arts, Dixon Place, The Drama League of New York, and will premiere Won't Be a Ghost at The Brick in April 2016.
